This study compared children (n=68) with either autism or general delay on false belief tasks and tasks to test for an understanding of interpretive diversity. Findings partially support the view that tasks of understanding interpretive diversity are more difficult than false belief tasks. Between-group differences in the consistency and quality of responses suggest different approaches to the tasks given. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
